Description

This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.

Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.

We come together in the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire with food, drink, music and each other. The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.

Limited £120 season tickets are available here

Seckou Keita

How to describe Seckou Keita?

Griot, praise singer, composer, djembe master, virtuoso, Kora player, pioneer?

The answer is ‘yes’ to all of those.

Seckou Keita is a true master of his instrument, a childhood prodigy, born of a line of griots and kings (Keita is the royal lineage, and not traditionally a griot name). Cissokho, his mother’s family name, gave life to his talent. His family includes Solo Cissokho, Seckou’s uncle, who introduced him to the International stage in 1996.

Over decades, Seckou has proved himself to be a musician almost without equal in his field. A driven, talented musician, with a heart full of tradition and a mind driven to compose, invent and push boundaries, through collaboration, tunings and playing with the genres he understands so well.
